Lying on a beautiful, long stretch of private beach, this tropical resort is situated in 400 lush acres of an 18th-century sugar plantation. There’s a large main swimming pool but everyone (kids especially) loves the Sugar Mill Falls Waterpark, which is the largest in Jamaica. Why not grab a tube and float down the ‘lazy river’ or try one of the slides. Water sports are available on the sparkling Caribbean Sea. There’s also a daily kids' club, leaving you with time to recharge in the full-service spa*, or why not try out the Championship golf course*, tennis and the popular aerobics classes. A variety of restaurant options with fine dining and sophisticated wine lists are on-site. The most romantic restaurant is the Three Palms, up on the hillside looking down over the hotel and the sea beyond.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We stayed 2 nights here after 4 nights in Ocho Rios at Couples Tower Isle. While I know they are different style AI's (one being adults only etc) I felt the huge differences made Hilton look like the... Read more poor relation in comparison to Couples. Firstly upon check in at 1pm we were told the room was not ready, no problem, we knew we were early, they gave us a beeper and off we went for lunch and a swim. Lunch at the poolside grill place was average at best, just very ordinary for both our meals, service and cleanliness of tables etc was clearly not a priority either. Pool area and lazy river were nice, lots of spots to relax and it was never hard to get a lounger. We swam etc till 4.30pm when we decided to go and ask whether the room was ready as we had an excursion to get ready for at 5.30pm....they reckoned they had beeped us but the beeper had remained silent. Now for an 'all inclusive' resort to not have free wifi all over, even in the lobby, poor effort Hilton. I stated my dissappintment already at the restaurant and the service of the front desk and we ended up with wifi included as we are also Hilton honors members (but not the highest tier to get the free wifi automatically) Room was good, bit dated, cleanliness was ok, view was lovely, ocean front and golf course view on a high floor. No water in the mini bar and not even soft drinks in the mini bar included in an all inclusive? Poor effort again. The next day we got 3 bottles of water after our room was serviced so not sure what went on there. Anyway, long story short we felt the hotel lacked in service, cleanliness and all inclusive measures. The buffet was very very average as were the poolside establishments. We found that there were a large number of conferences happening and this did not make the hotel feel like a relaxing holiday retreat but a business establishment that was trying to have the best of both worlds and failing on the relaxing AI aspect. We ate at 3 palms and that was good, however stating that there was a dress code and seeing people in shorts, flip flops and not even a collared polo shirt? Food was nice, service was ok, not great considering this was supposed to be the 'upmarket' restaurant. Next night we ate in the Italian Luna de Mar, again it was ok, not traditional italian or even great quality produce, but hit the spot and better than the buffet hideousness! We enjoyed our stay, but would not go back or recommend to friends whether they have children or not. Read less
We love the Rose Hall mainly for the lazy river, swim up bar, and waterslides right on the property. It's true that the beach isn't spectacular- not the clear turquoise blue you'd expect - and full... Read more of seaweed - but the lazy river area is so great for families that it's worth it. There's one big twisting waterslide for older kids and adults that you go down in an inner tube...and a smaller tame slide for little kids. The swim up bar is only feet from where the kids enter the water from the slides, so parents can just post up and enjoy their cocktails in the water while keeping an eye out. The lazy river is attached to the swim up bar so you just order your cocktail and start drifting. Be sure to make restaurant reservations ASAP because the buffet dining room, while pleasant, does not have the greatest food. The staff run games and dance lessons and contests during the day which are pretty fun. Banana Boat ride was fun but the boat operators lied and said it was cash only - not true -everything can be charged to the room. There's one large rectangular main pool that's great for tanning or little kids. The staff is extremely friendly especially since they're not working for tips. Again, if you're looking for turquoise water and large white beach, this isn't the place. But for a tropical vacation that has fun stuff for everyone all in one place, it's great. Read less
I agree with most of the reviews of this place, it's clean, the staff are nice and helpful, but it's not anything great. It's definitely not memorable or any place that I would make sure to return... Read more to. I expect more from an all-inclusive resort if I'm going to spend the majority of the time on the property. The room was nice, happy to see 2 queen beds instead of doubles. Our view was of the golf course and ocean on the 7th floor. No complaints about the room. The food was just OK. There's only one option for breakfast, which is the buffet. We ate several meals there, mostly lunch and breakfast and it was typical buffet food. Nothing really wowed me there. Mangoes is the restaurant by the lazy river and is the only option for food in the weird hours between lunch and dinner. When we went it was a complete mess--tons of dirty, empty tables, not enough staff to serve the people standing around waiting to be seated, and a general feel of chaos. The food was sub-par at best. We had dinner at Three Palms and Luna di Mare and both were quite good. There is one main pool and then a smaller pool by the waterpark. The main pool is pretty small, although well kept and with a nice view of the ocean. The beach is small, crowded with chairs, and the water is full of seaweed as many have reported. Also, the seaweed gives off a sulfur smell that you can smell while sitting at the pool--which takes away from the relaxing atmosphere. You have to pay for wifi anywhere in the hotel except for in the small "Internet Cafe" where you can access free wifi. The signal does not extend far beyond this small room, which is a little silly. If you're going to have free wifi, why not just extend it to the whole lobby? One more thing, the hotels have a racket going on with the taxi companies and will charge you outrageous prices to go anywhere. It costs $70 round trip to take a taxi to the Montego Bay hip strip, which is about a 15 minute drive away! It's $35 for the 10 minute ride to the airport. However, if you exit the resort to the main road and hail a cab (with a red license plate), the ride to Montego Bay costs $2 per person. Don't give in to the hotel's claims that the taxis at the hotel are "safer". This is how they make their money. Read less
